The Lonely Hearts Type Club was founded by a group of first-year students and myself at →HS Mainz during the COVID-19 shutdown. The shutdown was a time of confusion as well as of boredom. But when boredom meets curiosity magical things can happen.
The club members’ task was to design a grid based typeface. Everyone was free to experiment with simple and rather complex grids … and free to cheat a little.
All designs and sketches you’ll see on this page were produced between March and July 2020. Work in progress for life.
